Oleochemicals Market Trends and Drivers

The imminent need to replace petrochemical-based fuels owing to their limited availability and robust carbon emission is the disruptive trend restructuring the oleochemicals marketplace. This emergence has boosted the demands for green chemicals and renewable oleochemicals products, consequently boosting oleochemicals market growth. Biodiesel is the alternative to conventional diesel. The demands of biodiesel have increased rapidly because of the increasing costs from the crude oil industry and its fatal environmental hazards.
There is an increase in the adoption of bio-based lubricants which are replacing the synthetic and traditional lubricants. The newly accepted lubricants are much more efficient and cost-effective. Following these traits, the bio-lubricants market is driving the global oleochemicals market. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the biodiesel market is flourishing as the consumption of bio-diesel doubled to more than two billion gallons in 2016 when compared to 2015s one billion spot. Eventually, the traditional diesel is expected to get obsolete owing to strong regulations against it and the emergence of efficient and renewable bio-fuels.
Potent demand coming from the personal care sector for bio-degradable skin oils and products is one of the most important growth drivers for the oleochemicals market. The application of oleochemicals is numerous in terms of skin care products, and the incoming demands from this sector is unending owing to the limited inventory of personal care product at the consumers.
The soap and the detergents market is the largest sector where the oleochemicals are applied. The introduction of bio-surfactants is incredibly boosting the oleochemicals market. These bio-surfactants are diligently being employed for industrial use.

Oleochemicals are the chemicals which are extracted from plants and animal fats or oils. Growing demand for eco-friendly products is making a positive impact on the adoption rate of these chemicals. They have a wide range of applications in soaps and detergents, industrial, household and personal care product industries. Additionally, the innovations in the chemical industry have emerged with optimum, renewable and cost-effective products for the end-user consumers. These influences altogether are thrusting the oleochemicals market growth in the near future.
